The purpose of the IL BEI interpreter testing and certification process is to provide certification options to Illinois interpreters. The certification tests are both proficiency-based and criterion-referenced evaluations.
IL BEI MANUAL: The manual helps you to become familiar with the general format, content, and evaluation criteria used in the examinations, as well as, explain IDHHC's policies and procedures for the testing process.
Please be aware, payments are processed upon receipt; however, it may take up to 30 days to process an application. IDHHC will then send an email with current testing dates. Due to the number of BEI applications being received, testing dates are often 3-4 months out.
